So I am going to tell a quick story of a miracle I will never forget:
It was a Thursday and all of our appointments had fallen through. We were walking on the main road and we passed a street that I had probably already passed a million times. I felt that we needed to turn on that street, but as we began walking I realized it was a dead end. I got a little frustrated because why the heck had I received a prompting to turn on a tiny dead end street. We talked to some people that were outside and were about to turn back when I got a another prompting to clap at the gate of the very last house. As I approached the house there was a a giant sign outside that said something about fixing computers. I turned to my companion and said, ``No I think this is a business not a house...`` She responded that it wasn´t a business so I proceeded to knock. A man/youngish man came out and greeted us. He was pretty nice like the majority of the people we talk to. We gave him a pamphlet, got his information, and invited him to church. When Sunday rolled around we were running around picking up other investigators, and showed up to church late. When I looked inside there he was!!!!!!!! We couldn´t believe it. He had gone to church alone (that never happens). He loved church and stayed to watch our baptism!! The next day we taught him the Restoration and in one night he had already read to chapter 8 of 1 Nephi. Needless to say he was baptized Sunday, already is reading in Alma, and told us that he already knew all this was true. He says he feels at home at church. On the day of his baptism he turned to us with tears in his eyes and said, ``Why did you knock on my door? Of all the houses in Rio Branco? My house is the very last one on this tiny street.`` My companion and I looked at each other and then responded, ``We are representatives of Jesus Christ and He knows you and loves you. He sent us to you house.``
I don´t think I have ever taught anyone so prepared. I know that this is the Lord´s work and I could have easily disobeyed the prompting that I received that day, but because I listened one of God´s children has found the true gospel. Please never disobey the quiet whispering of the Spirit... I know that you don´t need a name tag to change someones life :)
I love you all.
Stay close to the Lord and don´t forget the little things.
I finally got my box!!! Thank you!!!
